Red Sox Drop Series Opener Against The Blue Jays

The Red Sox drop series opener.  Facing the Toronto Blue Jays last night the Sox lost by a score of 4-6. Drew Pomeranz got the nod for the Sox. Brett Anderson got the ball for the Blue Jays, the Sox were able to keep a lead only into the second inning. Where after that they trailed the rest of the way and the bats just didn’t seem to have that spark they’ve had in their last 10 games. Where they scored an astonishing 57 runs while allowing only 33 runs in that time period.



Drew Pomeranz started on the mound for the Red Sox, and he didn’t have the type of stuff that he’s had in his previous starts. He was only able to go two innings giving up 7 hits, 5 runs, and 5 earned runs while walking just 1 batter. So, if there is a silver lining to look at for his start it has to be the 1 walk he gave up. The bullpen was lights out after that giving up just one run in the 9th inning. Let’s hope this doesn’t turn into an every start kind of thing.


Scoring Summary

The Red Sox didn’t have many scoring chances in the game, only scoring 4 runs on 7 hits. It wasn’t the type of offensive output that we have seen from this team in recent games. Mookie Betts got the scoring started for the Sox when he grounded out to Justin Smoak, scoring Eduardo Nunez. Then in the same half-inning, Hanley Ramirez put the Red Sox on top with yet another ground out. Red Sox went scoreless until the 5th inning when Mookie Betts popped out, scoring Xander Bogaerts making the score 5-3. The last run for the Sox came in the eighth of an Andrew Benintendi solo home run to center field.


The Sox after that weren’t able to get anything else after that, ultimately losing the game 6-4. In a game that has no meaning for the Sox. It would still be nice to see how many games they can win all together in the 2017 regular season.
